THis posted on Flamingo toes a few months ago — today’s scrapbuster is actually a fun technique I learned from the cute girls over at Simple simon and Co. It’s the “quilt as you go” that they taught at Snap blog conference last year!
and it has branched out in a fun obsession….
I’m going to give you a basic rundown! You need some batting larger than your design…and trace your design (or I did a big square pillow so I didn’t need to trace!)
You want to make sure to overlap over your design to make sure it’s all sewed on nice! (aka go big or go home)
Then cut out your design.
…or put on a cute bag!
The sky is really the limit!!!
I also did a pillow for my sewing room chair…
and a bib (this is the original idea from Simple Simon and co
and then I decided to whip up an Easter pillow!
I love using my scraps!
so go sew! Thanks Bev for having me!
